“Excerpt from: Check if You Can Hear and Read the Words of Truth

Reading the Dharma Expels Evil Spirits

Please, listen to the CDs and DVDs of my lectures, and see  if  you begin to sleep in less than 5 minutes.

It means something is making you unable to listen.

I also did some experiments before.

When I was working in a company, there was someone possessed by an evil spirit of a dog.

He knew pretty well about the spirit world and said he would keep a secret about me, and ask me to take the spirit away.

So I thought I should help him, so I made him listen to a tape recording of one of my spiritual messages on the Truth .

When he began to hear my voice, in front of me, he began to completely fall asleep in less than 3 minutes, I think.

I was surprised to see the effectiveness of it.

Nowadays, our organization has become quite big and I have no chance myself, to be present in such kinds of situations, but some people, when they read my books, can only see that something is printed, but its meaning cannot enter into their mind.

They are like in an unclear state of mind and simply cannot understand what is written even if they try several times, or something twinkling on printed letters keeps them from reading.

It is exactly the same situation as people who cannot listen.

If you have these symptoms, you need to understand that you are in danger.

Even if you cannot change right now, you should make efforts to change progressively in the right direction.

You should also make it a habit to go regularly to our temples and shojas.

When you practice only at home, you could have the wrong understanding of the Truth, so it is truly important to receive the opinion or advice from others who study the Truth.

Por favor, ouça os CDs e DVDs das minhas palestras e veja se você começa a dormir em menos de 5 minutos.

Isso significa que algo está fazendo você incapaz de ouvir.

Eu também fiz algumas experiências antes.

Quando eu trabalhava em uma empresa, havia alguém possuído por um espírito maligno de um cachorro.

Ele conhecia muito bem sobre o mundo espiritual e disse que manteria  segredo a meu respeito, e me pediu para retirar o espírito.

Por isso, achei que deveria ajudá-lo, assim, o fiz ouvir uma fita gravada de uma das minhas mensagens espirituais sobre a Verdade.

Quando ele começou a ouvir minha voz, na minha frente, ele começou a adormecer completamente em menos de 3 minutos, eu acho.

Fiquei surpreso ao ver a eficácia disso.

Atualmente, nossa organização tornou-se bem grande e não tenho chance de estar presente em tais situações, mas algumas pessoas, quando leem meus livros, conseguem ver apenas que algo está impresso, mas seu significado não consegue entrar em sua mente.

Eles ficam num estado mental confuso e simplesmente não conseguem entender o que está escrito, mesmo que tentem várias vezes, ou algo cintilante sobre as letras impressas os impede de ler.

É exatamente a mesma situação das pessoas que não conseguem ouvir.

Se você tem esses sintomas, precisa compreender que está em perigo.

Mesmo que você não consiga mudar isso agora, deverá fazer esforços para mudar progressivamente na direção correta.

Você também deve criar o hábito de ir regularmente aos nossos templos e shojas.

Quando você pratica apenas em casa, pode ser que tenha um entendimento incorreto da Verdade, por isso é realmente importante ouvir a opinião ou o conselho de outras pessoas que estudam a Verdade.
